on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Gifted singer Angelique Kidjo has always worked hybrid angles, mixing elements of her native Beninese music and tradition with soul, rock, Caribbean and other global influences. Her new release Djin Djin is really two projects in one: Half of the CD is a series of mainstream-audience-seeking rock and pop collaborations with celebs like Peter Gabriel and Joss Stone. But the remaining tracks comprise her most stylistically African block of music in many years. Gearing up for her May 16 record release gig at B B King Blues club, Angelique talks about the new album, her background in a performing family in Benin, her work for international relief organizations and lots more.

Joe Boyd
Saturday, April 28th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Joe Boyd is simply one of the great record producers of our time. His engaging new memoir, "White Bicycles: Making Music in the 1960s" revisits his early career, when he was witness to an incredible amount of musical history.
Joe Boyd is especially notable for his role in the British folk-rock scene of the late sixties, but his career began road-managing blues, soul, and jazz tours; he booked the Pink Floyd as house band at his UFO club in London, stage-managed the Newport Folk Festival when Dylan plugged in, and later in his career ran the esteemed roots and world music label Hannibal Records.

Joe will discuss why he decided to be a producer instead of a musician, why he chose England over the US, the dawn of the British folk-rock scene with Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band, connections between his early career and his later adventures producing world music for his own Hannibal, and lots more.

Jenny Toomey from Rock the Net
Friday, April 20th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam

For the past decade independent musicians and record labels have thrived online, thanks to the Internet providing an unprecedented type of open access to fans and artists alike. However all that may soon come to a screeching halt because a handful of large telecommunications companies want to act as Internet traffic cops by charging web sites for better download speeds. If this happens it will result in a type of Internet payola, having a detrimental effect on independent artists and labels - both economically and creatively. The organization Rock The Net is leading the fight to protect freedom and innovation on the Internet. Jenny Toomey from Rock The Net will talk with Billy Jam to discuss all of these issues and more.


Mind Eraser
Thursday, April 19th, 2007, 2am - 6am
on Tony Rettman's show

Drawing from both the wierder elements of early 80's Hardcore like the Meat Puppets or Deep Wound, and the 'Power Violence' sounds of Infest and Crossed Out, Boston's Mind Eraser have caused quite a stir in their few years of existence. When they drop by the FMU studios to deliver this set to old man Rettman, expect nothing more than confusing brutality and a soiled diaper or two.

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007, 2am - 6am
on Mita!

Nearly five years after their legendary set as part of the experimental doom metal outfit Khanate, James Plotkin (O.L.D., Scorn) and Tim Wyskida (Blind Idiot God) are back with a solid hour of sonic mayhem that's sure to cause permanent ear damage to all who dare to tune in.

Get ready for some serious volume and heavy metal of a different strain this afternoon.


Sally Crewe and the Sudden Moves

Hang the Lights
Monday, April 16th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

A little country, a little creepy as Appalachian waltzes and two-steps clash with Middle Eastern rhythms is how one might describe Hang the Lights' sound. This four-piece from Brooklyn, featuring accordion, guitar, piano, bass and drums, drop by WFMU to perform songs by One Ring Zero's Joshua Camp with such heady topics as lycanthropy, coelacanths, satellites, and heartbreak.

Josh talks with Dan about made-up languages, an organ that plays scents, and the Kircherian mindset.

Tonight they'll be celebrating the release of their latest superhot cd, Teknochek Collision.

Edmar Castaneda is a virtuoisic young harpist and composer who has performed with Lila Downs, Yerba Buena, Marta Topferova and many others, as well as leading his own group. Edmar deftly blends traditional elements from his native Colombia with jazz and other influences using a technique he developed: playing bass lines with his left hand, while the right hand plays melody.

on Jason Elbogen's show

Washington DC's-based three piece The Caution Curves weave strangled vocals, electronic blippery, and found sounds into a compelling stew that ends up sounding like The Ex (from the "Joggers and Smoggers" era) fronted by Joan La Barbara.

The Brooklyn-based trio White Hills has earned attention and acclaim from tastemakers ranging from Julian Cope to the staff at Aquarius Records, and now it's your turn! Their latest release, "Glitter Glamour Atrocity" is an amazing amalgamation of guitar-crazed space rock, krautrock, psych, and even a little fuzz thrown in for good measure. They've drawn apt comparisons to Hawkwind, Joy Division, Neu!, and Echo and the Bunnymen, among others. Once you hear them live you'll be making your own comparisons. Don't miss it!!

M Shanghai String Band
Monday, April 9th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

With an adventurous take on Americana, The M Shanghai String Band is not easily classified. They've been playing together since 2002, when they first started monthly get-togethers at Brooklyn's M Shanghai Bistro & Den. Their debut album, "Up From the Ground Below", recorded in one day in the restaurant's dining room, set the mission in motion: timeless original songs played with a sense of abandon.

The M Shanghai String Band crosses the river to play in WFMU's Jersey City home.

on Irene Trudel's show

Conjuring up a vibe akin to stargazing while lazing in the backyard grass, Moore and Sons create a kind of musical escapism from the grimey city.

They drop by to play a set at WFMU.


Misty Roses
Sunday, April 1st, 2007, 5pm - 7pm
on Gaylord Fields's show

The transatlantic duo of Misty Roses -- New York singer Robert Conroy and London-based instrumentalist Jonny Perl -- re-create grandiose, cinematic orchestrations that recall Scott Walker and Dusty Springfield as adeptly as any two-man band possibly could. For this springtime session, they add acoustic and electric guitars to the electronics, yet maintain the dark notes of their recorded output, as can be found on the recently issued mini-LP Monster Zero.

In celebration of modern art's most controversial form, graffiti, WFMU will dedicate a show to the outlawed aerosol artform through interviews and hip-hop music: exploring its history, its place in the art world, its impact on commerce and advertising, plus its ever-increasing legal battles. In an examination of these topics, Billy Jam will host a round table discussion with studio guests that will include graffiti artists MUCK, EZO, DEMER, HOST18, and TABOO plus longtime graffiti photo-journalists Jim & Karla Murray: authors of the critically acclaimed books "Burning New York" and "Broken Windows."

Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
Nutty record collector Greg Germani from Decatur, Georgia drops by Music To Spazz By armed with crates of obscure country and hillbilly records to wing at the city folk. Expect drunken odes to dead children, incarcerated felons, horrific car crashes, abortion, capital punishment, skid row, hippies, winos, more hippies, murderers, suicide, women's lib, truck-driving, hare-brained novelties, and a truckload of toe-tappin' hillbilly mambo noise, country rhumbas, country tangos, and country twists. It'll be like listening to "Rubber Room" for three hours but in Hillbilly Smell-O-Vision!

Lee Feldman
Monday, March 26th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Evoking platitudes from reviewers such as, "Harry Nilsson meets Fats Waller," and "Randy Newman by way of Lou Reed and Paul Simon," Lee Feldman is a very entertaining singer, pianist and songwriter. His third album, "I've Forgotten Everything" is, according to Stereophile Magazine, "unlike anything else in contemporary pop." Lee is also the creator of STARBOY, an animated musical about a 2-dimensional superhero who lives with his uncle, a Mathematician. Lee stops by tickle the ivories on WFMU's piano.


Gabriel Kahane
Monday, March 26th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

"The bastard child of Alban Berg," as he calls himself on myspace, Gabriel Kahane makes music out of contradictions. Gabriel has created the Craigslistlieder-- ribald postings from craigslist.org set to chromatic, harmonically dense, and rhythmically jagged music in a song cycle. But to call him gimmicky would tell only part of the story. Kahane, while rooted in the classical tradition, writes funny and moving pop songs which he accompanies on piano. He drops by WFMU to play a few of them.


Peeesseye
Monday, March 26th, 2007, Midnight - 3am
on Woody's show

The Peeesseye and its many offshoots (Phantom Limb & Bison, P.I.M.F.W.S., collaborations with Tetuzi Akiyama and Stephen O'Malley, etc.) have been slinging mud and clawing at the foundations of the experimental noise underground for five years now. They've released 5 CDs and a 7 inch (all on Evolving Ear) in that time. Tune in to Woody's show as the Brooklyn trio drops by WFMU for a late-night live performance.

Vernon Lenoir : Jodorama
Wednesday, March 21st, 2007, 7pm - 8pm
on Phuj Phactory with Ergo Phizmiz

Vernon LeNoir explores the world of Alejandro Jodorowsky. Vernon's goal is to make the one truth transparent: if any spiritual culture has a Holy Mountain at which the top of lies the secret of immortality, there also has to be one Alejandro Jodorowsky in each culture who by his work and passion makes that culture immortal.
